        Raum und Zeit.

      Leipzig: F.W. Vogel, 1909. First edition of Minkowski's famous lecture on his theory of four-dimensional space-time, the first published account of this theory to be illustrated with 'spacetime diagrams', which were widely used later by Stephen Hawking, Roger Penrose and others in the development of general relativity. "In 'Space and Time', read by Minkowski in Cologne only a few months before his death, he introduced the notion that made possible the expansion of the relativity theory of Einstein from its specific (1905) to its general form (1916). Minkowski's space-time hypothesis was in effect a restatement of Einstein's basic principle in a form that greatly enhanced its plausibility and also introduced important new developments. Hitherto natural phenomena had been thought to occur in a space of three dimensions and to flow uniformly through time. Minkowski maintained that the separation of time and space is a false conception; that time itself is a dimension, comparable to length, breadth, and height; and that therefore the true conception of reality was constituted by a space-time continuum possessing these four dimensions" (Printing and the Mind of Man). "The laws of physics were written in the language of the geometry of this four dimensional space ... Physics had become geometry, and it was a stunning achievement" (Gerber, pp. 358-9). "'Raum und Zeit' was originally published in Vol. II (1909) of the Verhandlungen of the Deutscher Naturforscher und Aertze [offered here]; it was later reprinted in the Jahresbericht der Deutschen Mathematiker Vereinigung" (Norman). It is most commonly encountered in the separate (and later) printing from the Jahresbericht published as a tribute after Minkowski's sudden and tragic death. An outstanding copy of the first printing of this landmark lecture, rare in the original printed wrappers. Barchas 1440 (Verhandlungen journal issue); Honeyman 2231 & Norman 1514 (both listing separate printing from Jahresbericht); PMM 401 (Jahresbericht journal issue).

"Minkowski's ... 'Space and Time' lecture given in Cologne in 1908, began with these words: 'The views of space and time which I wish to lay before you have sprung from the soil of experimental physics, and therein lies their strength. They are radical. Henceforth space by itself, and time by itself, are doomed to fade away into mere shadows, and only a kind of union of the two will preserve an independent reality.' He ended as follows: 'The validity without exception of the world postulate [i.e., the relativity postulate], I like to think, is the true nucleus of an electromagnetic image of the world, which, discovered by Lorentz, and further revealed by Einstein, now lies open in the full light of day'. It is hardly surprising that these opening and closing statements caused a tremendous stir among his listeners, though probably few of them followed the lucid remarks he made in the body of the speech. Minkowski did not live to see his lecture appear in print. In January 1909 he died of appendicitis. [David] Hilbert called him 'a gift of heaven' when he spoke in his memory" (Pais, p. 152). "The impact of Minkowski's ideas on the twentieth century physics has been so immense that one cannot imagine modern physics without the notion of spacetime. It would hardly be an exaggeration to say that spacetime has been the greatest discovery in physics of all times. The only other discovery that comes close to spacetime is Einstein's general relativity, which revealed that gravity is a manifestation of the curvature of spacetime. But it was the discovery of spacetime which paved the way for this deep understanding of what gravity really is" (Petkov, p. v). Initially, Einstein was not impressed by Minkowski's four-dimensional formulation of special relativity, describing it as 'überflüssige Gelehrsamkeit' (superfluous learnedness), but he soon realized that his theory of gravity would be impossible without Minkowski's revolutionary contributions. At the beginning of his 1916 paper on general relativity Einstein wrote: "The generalization of the theory of relativity has been facilitated considerably by Minkowski, a mathematician who was the first one to recognize the formal equivalence of space coordinates and the time coordinate, and utilize this in the construction of the theory." In 1946 in his 'Autobiographical Notes' (p. 59), Einstein summarized Minkowski's main contribution: "Minkowski's important contribution to the theory lies in the following: Before Minkowski's investigation it was necessary to carry out a Lorentz transformation on a law in order to test its invariance under such transformations; he, on the other hand, succeeded in introducing a formalism such that the mathematical form of the law itself guarantees its invariance under Lorentz transformations. By creating a four-dimensional tensor-calculus he achieved the same thing for the four-dimensional space which the ordinary vector calculus achieves for the three spatial dimensions. He also showed that the Lorentz transformation (apart from a different algebraic sign due to the special character of time) is nothing but a rotation of the coordinate system in the four-dimensional space." Hermann Minkowski was born on 22 June 1864, in Alexotas, then in Russia, now the city of Kaunas in Lithuania. His parents were German and, from Alexotas, they moved back to their native land, in fact to Königsberg (now Kaliningrad in Russia), when he was only 8 years old. After attending the Gymnasium in Königsberg he attended the University there from which he was to receive his doctorate in 1885. As a young student, in 1883, he won the Grand Prix of the Academy of Sciences in Paris for his work on number theory. From Königsberg, he moved to a position at the University of Bonn in 1887. In 1896, after a brief return to Königsberg, he was appointed to a position at the Polytechnic in Zürich where he was one of Einstein's teachers. Einstein apparently thought Minkowski an excellent teacher of mathematics. Minkowski's view of Einstein, at the time, was less kind. In 1902 he moved again, this time to a chair at the University of Göttingen, where he remained for the remainder of his relatively short life, dying in 1909 at the age of only 44. In Göttingen, under the influence of David Hilbert, he became interested in mathematical physics. In October 1907 Hilbert and Minkowski conducted a joint seminar at Göttingen on the equations of electrodynamics in which they studied Einstein's 1905 paper 'Zur Elektrodynamik bewegter Körper' (Annalen der Physik 17, pp. 891-921), and Poincaré's 1906 article 'Sur la dynamique de l'électron' (Rendiconti del Circolo Matematico di Palermo 21, pp. 129-76). Participants in the seminar included Max von Laue, Max Born, Max Abraham and Arnold Sommerfeld. On November 5 Minkowski delivered a talk to the Göttingen Mathematical Society entitled 'The Principle of Relativity'; it was not published until 1915 ('Das Relativitätsprinzip,' Annalen der Physik 47, pp. 927-38). Minkowski opened his talk by declaring that recent developments in the electromagnetic theory of light had given rise to a completely new conception of space and time, namely, as a four-dimensional, non-Euclidean manifold. He introduced many of the mathematical concepts and terms that have come to be associated with his name and that became standard in any discussion of relativity, but he did not treat them systematically at this stage. Minkowski's second talk, "The Basic Equations of Electromagnetic Processes in Moving Bodies", was delivered at the meeting of the Göttingen Scientific Society on December 21, 1907, and published in April 1908. "It presented a new theory of the electrodynamics of moving media, incorporating formal insights of the relativity theories introduced earlier by Einstein, Poincaré and Planck. For example, it took over the fact that the Lorentz transformations form a group, and that Maxwell's equations are covariant under this group. Minkowski also shared Poincaré's view of the Lorentz transformation as a rotation in a four-dimensional space with one imaginary coordinate. These insights Minkowski developed and presented in an original, four-dimensional approach to the Maxwell-Lorentz vacuum equations, the electrodynamics of moving media, and in an appendix, Lorentz-covariant mechanics" (Gray, p. 102). ""The basic equations" made for challenging reading. It was packed with new notation, terminology, and calculation rules, it made scant reference to the scientific literature, and offered no figures or diagrams ... Few were impressed at first by Minkowski's innovations in spacetime geometry and four-dimensional vector calculus. Shortly after "The basic equations" appeared in print, two of Minkowski's former students, Einstein and Laub, discovered what they believed to be an infelicity in Minkowski's definition of ponderomotive force density. These two young physicists were more impressed by Minkowski's electrodynamics of moving media than by the novel four-dimensional formalism in which it was couched, which seemed far too laborious. Ostensibly as a service to the community, Einstein and [Jakob] Laub re-expressed Minkowski's theory in terms of ordinary vector analysis ['Über die elektromagnetischen Grundgleichungen für bewegte Körper', Annalen der Physik 26, 1908, pp. 532-540] ... "The form Minkowski gave to his theory of moving media in "The basic equations" had been judged unwieldy by a founder of relativity theory, and in the circumstances, decisive action was called for if his formalism was not to be ignored. In September 1908, during the annual meeting of the German Association of Natural Scientists and Physicians in Cologne, Minkowski took action, by affirming the reality of the four-dimensional "world", and its necessity for physics ... One way for Minkowski to persuade physicists of the value of his spacetime approach to understanding physical interactions was to appeal to their visual intuition. From the standpoint of visual aids, the contrast between Minkowski's two publications on spacetime is remarkable: where "The basic equations" is bereft of diagrams and illustrations, Minkowski's Cologne lecture makes effective use of diagrams in two and three dimensions. For instance, Minkowski employed a two-dimensional spacetime diagrams to illustrate FitzGerald-Lorentz contraction of an electron, and the lightcone structure of spacetime" (Walter, pp. 14-17).

        Heimkehrende Schafe.

      - Farblithographie, um 1909, auf cremefarbenem Japan, signiert. Darstellungsgröße 19,5:19,7 cm, Blattgröße 37:28,7 cm. Nach einem Besuch der Kunstgewerbeschule in München, ging der als Tiermaler bekannte Ludwig Heinrich Jungnickel 1897 für fast ein Jahr nach Neapel. 1899 zog er nach Wien und absolvierte eine Ausbildung an der örtlichen Akademie bei C. Griepenkerl (1839-1912). Zwischenzeitlich erfolgte eine Ungarnreise. Ab 1902 setzte er seine Studien bei A. Roller (1864-1935) an der Wiener Kunstgewerbeschule fort. 1906 besuchte er die Münchner Kunstakademie und war Schüler von C. von Marr (1858-1936), ab 1907 studierte er an der Wiener Kunstakademie und erlernte die Radiertechnik bei W. Unger (1837-1932). In Wien wurde er Mitarbeiter der Wiener Werkstätte und entwarf Gläser, Vasen, Stoffe, Tapeten, Teppiche etc. Mit G. Klimt, mit dem er seit der frühen Wiener Zeit freundschaftlich verbunden war und der starken Vorbildcharakter auf ihn hatte, war er an der Ausschmückung des Palais Stoclet in Brüssel beteiligt. Seine 1909 präsentierten Farbholzschnitte – die ersten zeigte er 1908 – mit Darstellungen von Tieren aus dem Tiergarten Schönbrunn, verschafften ihm internationale Anerkennung. 1911 wurde er Professor an der Kunstgewerbeschule in Frankfurt am Main. Allerdings kehrte er bereits ein Jahr später nach Wien zurück. Von dort aus unternahm er in den 20er Jahren zahlreiche Reisen, die ihn u.a. nach Deutschland, Holland, Italien und Jugoslawien führten. In den 30er Jahren emigrierte er nach Opatija/Kroatien – seine Wohnung wurde zwischenzeitlich von der Gestapo geräumt –, von wo er erst 1952 nach Wien zurückkehrte. Neben Tierdarstellungen als zentrales Thema schuf Jungnickel vorwiegend Bildnisse und Akte, auch Landschaften.

        Printed Address, To the Electors of Dundee,

      Dundee: John Leng & Co.,, 1909-10. 28 December 1909, Board of Trade, Whitehall Gardens, London, 28 December 1909. [Together with:] Printed Address, To the Electors of Dundee, 23 November 1910. Quarto, four pages and quarto, 2 pages. The first-named with crosswise creases from old folds, first and last pages toned and somewhat soiled, both leaves with a closed tear into the fore-margin, professionally repaired; the second browned and splitting at the margins, some minor losses, closed tear at the fore-margin repaired, encroaching on the text but no loss, about very good. Churchill invokes Lincoln's famous formulation from the Gettysburg Address in his election addresses on the momentous constitutional battle between the House of Commons and the House of Lords. In November 1909, the Lords rejected the "People's Budget" of 1909 proposed by Liberal Prime Minister Herbert Asquith. The bill called for higher taxes on the wealthy to pay for a limited scheme of unemployment and worker's health insurance. The bill, and the intransigence of the House of Lords, became the central issue in two general elections held in 1910, the first in January the second in December. In the first address, Churchill decries the Lords' veto, saying "The people can be trusted. They are of age ? If at one end of our political system we have a hereditary House of Landlords and great capitalists, wielding an absolute veto over legislation and finance...[then] government of the people, by the people, for the people will have become a nineteenth century daydream." The Spectator published brief extracts and a comment on this address; "Mr. Winston Churchill's election address , when shorn of its purple platitudes, is chiefly remarkable for its denunciation of the Peers" (quoted in Cohen). The January 1910 election resulted in the Liberals forming a coalition government dependent upon their Labour Party and Irish Nationalist allies. The Lords approved a slightly modified version of the People's Budget in April 1910, but the Liberals were determined to strike down the veto power of the upper chamber, and made it the issue of a second general election, in December 1910. In his second address (November 1910), Churchill is more combative and impatient. "No one can persuade the Tory Party to give up their Veto. They regard themselves as the ruling caste ? They treat us as if we were a conquered race ? They cannot bring themselves ? to part from that unfair Veto ? You will have to take it from them. You will have to take it from them now. You will have to take it from them for ever. One good wrench, and out it comes!" The growing political unrest in the country forced the Lords to yield and they consented to the Parliament Act of 1911, which significantly reduced their powers. These ephemeral pieces of election literature are extremely uncommon, Cohen giving just one location for each of these pieces.

Sehr ansprechend gestaltete Broschüre mit Kostümentwürfen und Einbandgestaltung von dem ungenannten Koloman Moser. ?Die künstlerische Zusammenarbeit von Moser und Bittner geht auf das Jahr 1909 zurück, als Bittners Ballett ?Der Mantel der Liebe? im Gartentheater der internationalen Kunstschau uraufgeführt wurde. Ein undatierter Brief Kolo Mosers, der aus dem Jahr 1909 stammen muß, handelt von diesem Projekt: ??Es wäre gut wenn gleich nach Fertigstellung Ihrer Arbeiten [Klavierpart] mit den Proben begonnen werden könnte. Gretl Wiesenthal ist entzückt. [] Gretl möchte eventuell bei Reinhardt in Berlin die Lilith spielen und ihrer Schwester Else die Minne überlassen! []. Wir werden dann festsetzen ob und wann eine Zusammenkunft von Godlewsky, Gretl, Wimmer, Ihnen etc. stattfinden soll.? Die in dem Brief angekündigte Mitwirkung von Grete und Elsa Wiesenthal kam nicht zustande. Die Hauptrollen der Minne und Lilith tanzten bei der am 25. Juni 1909 stattfindenden Uraufführung Lene [d.i. Marie Madeleine] und Miss Macara. Die Choreographie stammte von Karl Godlewsky, die Inszenierung vom Architekten E. J. Wimmer [d.i. Eduard Josef Wimmer-Wisgrill ?], die musikalische Leitung hatte Egon Bloch inne.? (Vgl. dazu: Zauner W., ?Meine tiefe und aufrichtige Verehrung für ihre Person und ihr Werk? in ÖMZ Bd. 44, Dez. 1989, S. 78). - Die Abbildungen zeigen: ?Frau Minne? (Lene Jamrich) / ?Lilith? (Miss Macara) / ?Ein Sonnenstrahl? (Mitzi Schreiner) / ?Das Weib? (Clarisse Robert) / ?Die Kokette? (Mitzi Schreiner). Das Stoffmuster des Mantels den ?Frau Minne? trägt, ist dasselbe Flächenmuster wie das des Einbandes. - DIESES OBJEKT UNTERLIEGT DER DIFFERENZBESTEUERUNG. 14 x 15 cm. 12 ungez. Bll. Mit 5 photogr. Abb. Kordelgeheft. OBrosch. m. dekorativem Buntpapiereinband (Herz-Flächenmuster in Rosa, Schwarz u. Rot gedruckt). Nahezu druckfrisches Exemplar, lediglich der Einband mit leichten Stellspuren.

        OTTOMAN EMPIRE / TURKEY / LEVANT / SYRIA / IRAQ: NOUVELLE CARTE GÉNÉRALE DES PROVINCES ASIATIQUES DE L'EMPIRE OTTOMAN (SANS L'ARABIE) DRESSÉE PAR HENRI KIEPERT, BERLIN 1883. CHEMINS DE FER D’APRÈS L’ÉTAT DE 1909.

      Berlin: Dietrich Reimer 1909 - Chromolithograph, dissected into 65 sections and mounted upon original linen (104 x 172 cm / 41 x 67.5 inches), plus smaller chromolithographed political map, dissected into 10 sections and mounted upon original linen (33 x 55 cm / 13 x 21.5 inches), all folding into original card case, pastedown seller’s stamps of ‘Edward Stanford Ltd.’ and former pastedown owner’s stamp of the ‘Library of the Institute of Civil Engineers’ of Great Britain (Condition: Good, some areas of light toning, separations in linen at some folds (since mended) with very minor chipping and loss to edges of few map sections; case heavily worn with loss to upper part of spine). A colossal map of the Ottoman Empire in Turkey, the Levant and Iraq, composed by the eminent German cartographer Heinrich Kiepert, and updated to 1909, during the ‘New Great Game’, in the lead-up to World War I. This impressive, gargantuan map depicts the heart of the Ottoman Empire, including Turkey, the Levant (modern Syria, Lebanon, Israel and Jordan) and Iraq; plus adjacent regions, including parts of Persia (Iran), Egypt and the Caucuses. One of the most detailed and accurate geographical overviews of the region ever made to date, it was complied in 1883 by the immensely knowledgeable and well connected German geographer Heinrich Kiepert, and updated to 1909 under the supervision of Kiepert’s son, Richard, also a professional geographer. The present edition of the Kiepert map is especially interesting and important, as it, perhaps better than any other map, showcases the ‘New Great Game’, the grand German-Ottoman designs in the region, conducted at the expense of the new Anglo-Russian alliance, in the immediate run-up to World War I. The Ottoman lands are outlined in pink, and show how the empire is virtually surrounded by enemy powers. In Europe, to the northwest, are Christian nations, former Ottoman possessions that had a ‘complex’ relationship with Istanbul, to say the least. To the northeast, are the Caucuses, outlined in green, which are possession of Russia, an ancient foe of the Ottomans. To the east, is Persia, outlined in yellow, the Turks’ oldest adversary. Event though Egypt is shown to normally be a part of the Ottoman Empire, in reality, it was controlled by Britain, a power that was increasingly at odds with Turkey. The main map is exceedingly detailed, based on the most advanced scientific surveys available. The names of many geographical features and towns are given in a variety of languages, as explained in the table below the title. All major topographical features are depicted, with mountains expressed through shading. Innumerable cities and towns are noted in their precise locations, while all major roads and railways (many of which had been completed only recently) are delineated. Importantly, Kiepert includes ethnographic information, labeling the local peoples in each area, critical information in such a politically volatile region. The separate, but accompanying smaller map, Aperçu General de la Division Administrative des Provinces Asiatiques de l'Empire Ottoman, is a political map of the area depicted on the main map. The map delineates the various sanjaks (vice-regencies), vilayets (provinces), and kazas (cantons), which are listed in the surrounding tables. Kiepert sensibly notes on the main map (in the lower-left corner) that he did not include these political divisions on the larger map, as it would leave it cluttered. Heinrich Kiepert drafted the main map in 1883, and the first edition was chromolithographed onto 6 large sheets and published in 1884 by Dietrich Reimer in Berlin. The map was very highly regarded and examples were ordered by German industrial concerns and government agencies all across Europe. It was reissued in several updated editions, in 1891, 1898, 1899, 1909 (the present edition), 1910, 1912 and 1917. Richard Kiepert, Heinrich’s son, oversaw the editions issued after the elder Kiepert’s death in 1899. . SEE OUR WEB PAGE FOR L

        The Heart of the Antarctic Being the story of the British Antarctic Expedition 1907–1909. With an Introduction by Hugh Robert Mill, D.Sc. An Account of the First Journey to the South Magnetic Pole by Professor T. W. Edgeworth David, F.R.S.

      London: William Heinemann, 1909 - 2 volumes, large octavo. Original blue pictorial cloth, front covers with large silver block, spines lettered gilt, top edges gilt, others uncut. With the drab paper, typographical dust jackets, Rosove's No.1 without the pricing details. Light damping at the fore-edge of all boards, the silver blocks to the front boards slightly oxidised as always, frontispieces browned verso, light browning else, foxing to the fore-edges, the jackets a touch rubbed, minor chipping and splitting at the heads of the spines, small hole to the lower panel of that of volume II, but overall very good set indeed, entirely unrestored. Photogravure frontispiece to each volume, 12 captioned tissue-guarded coloured, and 255 black and white other plates in all, 3 maps, panorama in end-pocket of volume II, and numerous illustrations and diagrams throughout. Without the errata slip in volume II. First edition. Shackleton's account of the British Antarctic Expedition of 1907–9 (Nimrod), reviewed on publication by the Manchester Guardian as "the best book of Polar travel which has ever been written". The sledge expedition "to the south magnetic pole was one of the three foremost achievements of this expedition. The other two achievements were, first, the ascent and survey of Mount Erebus (12,448 feet), the active volcano on Ross Island and, second, the southern sledge journey, which reached within 100 miles of the south pole" (ODNB). The expedition established Shackleton as a "bona fide English hero," but the success of the book did little to alleviate "the financial problems left to him by the expedition" (Books on Ice). Sir Raymond Priestley (1886–1974), a British Geologist and Antarctic explorer who accompanied Shackleton on the 1907–1913 Antarctic expeditions, said, "For scientific leadership, give me Scott; for swift and efficient travel, Amundsen; but when you are in a hopeless situation, when there seems to be no way out, get on your knees and pray for Shackleton". Rosove notes "dust-jackets are very scarce". Books on Ice 7.4; Rosove 305.B1b; Spence 1097; Taurus 58. [Attributes: First Edition]

        MILITARY DEMOLITIONS ...

      [Ft. Leavenworth, KS ?], 1909. 40pp. plus 13 leaves of plates from photographs (printed on rectos only). Small octavo. Staple-bound in pale blue-gray printed wrappers. Three pages of diagrams in text. A bit of sunning to wrapper edges, tiny closed tear at fore-edge of upper wrapper, slight chipping at crown and toe of spine, fore-corners of lower wrapper have soft creases, a couple of thread-like adhesion marks to title, otherwise a very good copy, internally about fine. The rarest of two forms of the first separate publication by the future General of the Army, published when he was a 1st Lt. in the Corps of Engineers. The text is noted on the title leaf as "Delivered : Mounted Service School, Fort Riley, Kansas, November. 1908 [/] Stafe [sic] College, Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, December, 1908 [/] School of the Line, Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, January 1909." MacArthur had been posted to Fort Leavenworth in April of 1908, where he was given his first command, Company K, 3rd Engineer Battalion. He was promoted to Battalion Adjutant in 1909 and then Engineer Officer at Fort Leavenworth in 1910. Another more formal version of this work was published after its adoption for use in the Ft. Leavenworth service schools, paginated at only 34 pages. The probability that this is the earliest, and likely a preliminary form, is suggested by the unadorned wrappers (the other version bears notice of the adoption and the logo of the Corp of Engineers), a resetting and rearrangement of the title (and correction of 'Stafe' to 'Staff') in the other version, a revision of page breaks between the two versions, the inclusion of the three pages of drawings in the formal pagination in this version (pages 19, 20, and 21) and their exclusion from pagination in the other version (they fall between pages 16 and 17), among other features. The relative scarcity of this form (OCLC locates two copies of this version, at West Point and the Army Heritage Center) when compared to the other (15 copies, with wide dissemination among libraries) also weighs on the side of it being a preliminary printing. OCLC: 15999505.
